Abstract: A co-location spatial pattern is a pattern of multiple groups which co-relates spatial features or events that are frequently located in same zone. Co-location pattern mining emphasizes overall analysis by manipulating the proportion of spatial features and other relevant information's. In this paper we are trying to remove the problem of co-location mining from the large data set. Data is generated from wide range of data sources that are available in geographical space. One method to mine the widely spread co-location is to compute the participation index in measuring the prevalence of the co-location. First option from the above said the measure is closely inter-related to cross function, which often used for measuring the statistical among various pair of spatial features. Second option focused on the property of anti-monotones which can be included for computational perspective efficiency. In this paper, we are trying to incorporate a novel multi-resolution pruning technique to address the problem of mining co-location data pattern with rare spatial features.
Keywords: Spatial colocation,spatially uncertain data set, possible world, probabilistic prevalent colocation(PPCs).

Abstract: Recent development of Distributed computer systems (DCSs) in networked industrial and manufacturing applications on the World Wide Web (WWW) platform, including service-oriented architecture and Web of Things QoS-aware systems, it has become important to predict the Web performance prediction in time and in space .In this paper, we present Web performance prediction in time by making a forecast of a Web resource downloading using the Turning Bands (TB) geostatistical simulation method. Real-life data for the research were obtained from our own website named "Distributed forecasting system". We generate log file form our website and performing monitoring of a group of Web clients from connected LAN. For better web forecasting we used spatio temporal prediction method with time utility for downloading particular file from website with locations. Also perform comparison study in between spatio temporal method & TB methods. The results show good quality of Web performance prediction using the TB method.

Country : India
Authors : Lekshmi A., Prathibha S. Nair
: 10.9790/0661-16261421    logo
Abstract: Educational data mining is an emerging research area where the traditional data mining techniques are applied on Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) to study the learning pattern of students. This paper conducts a survey on various ITS that are used currently. An agent-based ITS that fosters the use of Self Regulated Learning (SRL) processes mainly concentrates on two questions: (1) How can students be grouped according to their performance and their type of interaction with the system? (2) How do specific learning behaviors of high and low performing students differ, in particular regarding their use of SRL processes ?.The study helps in understanding how data can be mined and how the learners can be grouped into different clusters based on their learning activities.

Title : Improving Fault Detection Capability Using Coverage Based Analysis
Country : India
Authors : Sanyogita Chaturvedi, A. Kulothungan
: 10.9790/0661-16262230<    logo
Abstract: A test suite for a system consists of several test cases and as the number of test cases is more, execution of all of these will take much time. If the number of test cases are reduced the execution time could be reduced. Moreover, if the execution of these is done in an ordered fashion ,it is observed to give an increased rate of fault detection. This can further be beneficial by providing feedback to system developers , improving fault fixing activity and thus ,software delivery. The reduction of test cases can be done in several ways. But the scenario is different when functional dependencies exists between some test cases, that is, one test case is needed to be executed before another. In this paper, two test case reduction techniques will be presented which will be followed by using the dependency information from a test suite. The first reduction technique considers all of the test cases while the second one is applied on the rejected suite obtained after implementing the first technique. This work is actually based on the hypothesis that lesser number of test cases will reduce the execution time, provided that the reduced test suite contains cases which collectively will cover the testing of every statement in the source code. Existing dependencies between different tests represent the interaction in the system under test, and hence, execution of complex instructions earlier is supposed to increase the fault detection rate, compared to arbitrary or untreated test orderings. Thus, the dependency information could further be used for prioritization of the test cases.
Keywords: test case reduction, functional dependency, regression testing.

Abstract: This article focuses on the research on the complex processes of joint integration of PDM and ERP systems. The relevance of introducing an integrated system within a single information space is justified. The main challenges of systems integration under a unified automation approach are described, including production planning and better management of production data. To successfully solve such problems ERP system needs to operate a certain amount of reference data, without which the production plan will be ineffective or impossible. Due to the fact that such data is often generated and stored in the product data management systems, it becomes necessary to provide data exchange between ERP and PDM systems. A number of key issues relating to the development and establishment of systems are determined. The functions of ERP and PDM systems that require a creation of an interaction interface between them are allocated and described. In conclusion, the positive trends, achievable through integration are reviewed.

Abstract: Cloud computing is a set of IT services that are provided to a customer over a network on a leased basis and with the ability to scale up or down their service requirements. It advantages to mention but a few include scalability, resilience, flexibility, efficiency and outsourcing non-core activities. Cloud computing offers an innovative business model for organizations to adopt IT services without upfront investment. Despite the potential gains achieved from the cloud computing, the organizations are slow in accepting it due to security issues and challenges associated with it. Security is one of the major issues which hamper the growth of cloud. The idea of handing over important data to another company is worrisome; such that the consumers need to be vigilant in understanding the risks of data breaches in this new environment. This paper introduces a detailed analysis of the cloud computing security issues and challenges focusing on the cloud computing types and the service delivery types.

Title : Trust Based Secure Payment Scheme for Multi-hop Wireless Networks
Country : India
Authors : Mrs. Chinchu V. S., Ms. Meji Jose
: 10.9790/0661-16263843    logo
Abstract: In this paper we propose a secure payment scheme called, trust based micro payment scheme for multihop wireless networks. This micro payment scheme enhances the cooperation of nodes and fairness of the network. Each node is assigned a trust value. Based on the trust value, a trust based routing protocol is maintained to route the packet. A report is submitted by each node to a trusted party after the communication. Based on the consistency of the report the payment is cleared. For the fair reports without any processing overhead the payment is cleared. In the case of cheater nodes more cryptographic operations and processing is required to analyze the evidences, which is submitted by each node to the trusted party ,when an inconsistent report is submitted. The report contains the alleged charges for relaying the packets. The RACE performs less cryptographic operation and processing overhead. It uses the micro payment and the overhead cost is much less than the payment value. Moreover, RACE can secure the payment and precisely identify the cheating nodes without false accusations.

Abstract: Credit card fraud detection is an important application of outlier detection. Due to drastic increase in digital frauds, there is a loss of billions dollars and therefore various techniques are evolved for fraud detection and applied to diverse business fields. The traditional fraud detection schemes use data analysis methods that require knowledge about different domains such as financial, economics, law and business practices. The current fraud detection techniques may be offline or online, and may use neural networks, clustering, genetic algorithm, decision tree etc. There are various outlier detection techniques are available such as statistical based, density based, clustering based and so on. This paper projected to find credit card fraud by using appropriate outlier detection technique, which is suitable for online applications where large scale data is involved. The method should also work efficiently for applications where memory and computation limitations are present. Here we have discussed one such unsupervised method Principal Component Analysis(PCA) to detect an outlier.

Abstract: Over the past decade wireless multi-hop ad-hoc networks have received a tremendous amount of research focus. Mobile devices equipped with wireless short range communication technologies make possible new applications for spontaneous communication, interaction and collaboration. The collaboration is used to facilitate communication when mobile devices are not able to establish direct communication paths. So the communication is multi-hop with intermediate nodes acting as routers that forward the messages addressed to other nodes. The concept of multi-hop ad-hoc networking was successfully applied in several classes of networks. This paper reviews the categories of wireless multi-hop ad-hoc networks and discusses main evolutions of wireless multi-hop ad-hoc networks specially the opportunistic networks.

Abstract: In the present era of globalization QUALITY has immerged as the major factor for survival and the organizations are issuing various standards in order to achieve the same. But for any organization pursuing the quality and the subsequently continuously improving the same, the challenge is to select a particular standard. For a software organization the task has become more difficult as majority of the globally existing standards have been set considering the manufacturing sector – the dominant industry in 19th century. The main objective of this paper is to evaluate the available quality standards for the software industry with an intention to describe the strengths and weaknesses of each of them. A particular software organization depending on their specific requirement can select the best possible option amongst these for successful implementation and in the end survival.

Title : An Approach to Steadfast and Reliable Resource Scheduling in Cloud Environment
Country : India
Authors : A. Aalan Babu, S. Roselin Mary

Abstract: In cloud computing, resource allocation and scheduling are the necessary requirements which helps the cloud users to access the resources that are available. Applications implemented in the cloud often required to interact amongst themselves and, in case, rarely depend on other implemented applications. Present cloud schedulers do not consider the infrastructure properties of cloud during resource allocation and scheduling process. In this paper, we propose a reliable resource scheduling algorithm that can automatically manage the cloud infrastructure by considering both user requirements and infrastructure properties and policies. A new prototype is presented based on Openstack and it implements the proposed cloud scheduler. Our work specifically focuses on providing the cloud scheduler with trustworthy input that expose the trust status of cloud infrastructure and it also further establish the foundations of planned future work to cover other properties. It further provides an implementation of the past work on trust management of cloud which provides the cloud scheduler with input about the accurate trust status of that cloud infrastructure.
